Elicoidali With Bronte Pistachio Pesto, Pancetta, Spinach And Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

Elicoidali with Bronte Pistachio

If you are looking for a unique pesto, try our Bronte Pistachio Pesto! Best known for their emerald-green coloration and intense fragrance, Bronte Pistachios are widely lauded the best pistachio in the world, and many believe they have 3x the flavor than that of your standard pistachio. Furthermore, Bronte Pistachios represent less than 1% of the world’s pistachio production which makes them extremely special.

Brontese farmers perceptively noticed that pistachio trees give higher quality nuts, along with a greater yield, if allowed to skip a year of harvesting. They found that if the tree rests one year, it has more vigor to produce the prized fruit. Hence, on the off year the Brontese farmers prune all the buds from the pistachio trees thus eliminating not only the leafing of the tree, but the opportunity to harvest the nuts. The following year they allow the fruit to grow normally and harvest the world-renowned nuts.
